  • It is always a nice panorama to stroll along the banks of the Sumida. Especially in the evening, have very good views of the surroundings. If you get a chance, it is highly recommended to take one of the boats ranging from Asakusa to Odaiba.

  • When visiting attractions along the River, many people Asakusa azumabashi, Ginza, Tsukiji, near kachidoki bridge to tour at will. Is of course there is one of the attractions that we recommend you want is on both sides of eitai bridge near the Sumida river terrace. Kiyosu bridge, eitai bridge seen from here views, modern Tokyo can feel the femininity.

  • The visit in the winter for the first time. It is still most beautiful cherry blossom season. Is the landscape sculpture of Asahi Breweries headquarters along the River, look like the sky, shines in its own way.

  • Chihiro and hiroshi fell off that bridga on 10/25/95 i dont like that bridge
  • This is mystic, with shrines temples, huge monuments and old fashioned bashis all around this looks like the fort of some king. Women walking around in traditional outfit with all possible Japanese gestures and various eateries, this is irresistibly awesome. The Gawa cruises take you through some amazing landscapes within Tokyo. You can see the palace, the Golden Poop building, the SkyTree. Try getting the Yakatabune ones where you get to enjoy a meal on ur cruise.
  • Stunning river in between 浅草 and Tokyo Skytree! Beautiful sunset there! Love 隅田川 so much!
  • Nice river
